Grape Clafoutis (French Dessert Recipe)
How about a simple but extremely delicious French dessert… Clafoutis is originally made with (canned) cherries. but then it will be grapes in my case here.
Serve the clafoutis preferably lukewarm, sprinkled with some icing sugar. A cup of freshly brewed coffee next to it. Lovely…
- 9 oz white grapes (250 g), seedless
- 3,5 oz caster sugar (100 g)
- 2,5 oz pastry flour (70 g), sifted
- ⅔ cup whole milk (160 ml), lukewarm
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 medium eggs
Wash the grapes well and remove any stems. Break the eggs and then transfer them to a large mixing bowl. Pour in the caster sugar.
- Beat the eggs and sugar until pale and foamy. Pour in the lukewarm milk and the vanilla extract.
- Stir well again. Sprinkle with the sifted pastry flour and a little pinch of salt and nutmeg.
- Then combine the ingredients in the bowl until you get a silky smooth and runny batter. Butter a shallow baking dish and carefully pour the batter in it.
- Top with the white grapes.
- Then bake the clafoutis in a preheat the oven to 356°F (180°C) for 40 to 50 minutes until the top is lightly golden and the batter is fully set in the center. The clafoutis will puff up a little while baking but that will disappear while cooling down. Remove the clafoutis from the hot oven and let it cool at room temperature. Then sprinkle with icing sugar and serve lukewarm.
